CSSP Award Nominations

The process for award nominations for the Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP) Leadership Citation, Carl Sagan, Educational Research, and Support of Science Awards are as follows:

  • Nominations are submitted via a one page document explaining the reasons for nominating a particular individual. Send to [email protected]
  • A CV needs to be submitted for each nominee
  • Nominations are forwarded to the awards committee Chair, who is the current Board Chair-elect for CSSP
  • Anyone may encourage a Board member to present a nomination by providing them with the information, but it does require a Board member submission.
  • The awards committee, comprised of current members of the Board, will then consider nominations.
  • Deadline for awards nominations by January 15th for our May (spring) workshop, and June 15th for our December (winter) workshop in order to allow adequate time to decide on an awardee, notify them and allow them time to arrange travel to the meeting.
  • One requirement of receiving the award is that the recipient must attend the CSSP meeting in person.

Selection of honorees for the CSSP Visionary Leader Distinction is at the discretion of the Chair of the Executive Board of the CSSP.

Past recipients and awards offered are under the Outreach and Awards tab.
